In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

All aboard

Some songs just stick with you.

Ride The Train By Abie Rotenberg

Come on and ride the train

step on board, take your ticket
no two are the same
you'll soon be going for a ride
there's nowhere to run
no place to hide
you're riding riding riding on the train
-
But you try to check your ticket

and you dont know what it means
will you get to sit on velvet
and dine on fine cuisine?

Or is your place to be up on a
worn out wooden seat
with a slice of old and crusty bread
your only food to eat
_


Come on and ride the train
the doors are closing, the whistles blowing
now you must remain
the locomotive's on a roll
just some things you can't control
you're riding riding riding on the train
-


So you ask an older passenger
how long will this ride be?
he says "sorry son i cant say
there is no guarantee
it might be the next station,
we'll be there in no time
but maybe if youre lucky you can stay
till the end of the line"

music

Then you take a walk up thru the train
each boxcar one by one
most are filled by people saying
this ride's just for fun

why think about tommorrow
when you've got today instead
sit back enjoy the veiw
there's miles and miles of rail ahead


Ride the train.....come on everybody ride the train
ride the train.......come on everybody, ride the train


But one car seems so different
inhabited by few
who say there is no time to waste
we're only passing through
the choices that you make today
are all that's gonna last
this train is moving down the track
and it's moving awful fast



Come on and ride the train
step on board take your ticket
no two are the same
you'll soon be going for a ride
there's nowhere to run
no place to hide
you're riding riding riding on the train.......
